PORT ST. LUCIE SCHOOL HEAD LICE POLICY

Schools in Port St. Lucie have a "no nit" policy, which means that if a child has lice eggs he or she will be sent home from school.

The policy is stated as follows, "Students with school verified cases of head lice will have 2 excused absences per incident up to a maximum of two incidents per semester. Students who return to school with lice or nits and who are sent home that same day or who remain in the clinic/office will not be counted as “in-attendance” and will have the absence unexcused...Parents should also accompany their child to school to have their head checked by the health paraprofessional or nurse when returning from a head lice absence."
